Scenes of Winter

Happy Holidays friends! Hope this finds finds you filled with love and joy and kindness, whether you are alone or surrounded by friends and family. The light is growing as the days begin to grow longer. All around us is light and love whether we can see it and feel it or not.

Here are some phone photos I took of winter scenes along my walk. The weather here fluctuates between snow, rain, clear paths, slush, ice and mostly gray, gray, gray 🙂 I have to warm my heart from within these days.

Winter is an inward time mostly, a time of reflection. As we leave this year and decade, I am grateful for you taking the time to read, like, comment on and follow my blog. Although I do most things alone, I carry you with me on my walks and journeys. May your heart be soothed and lifted with this new year. May we finally and fully realize peace on this planet, kind and gentle stewardship of the earth and all life upon it.

Love, katelon

More Manito Park, Spokane, WA

I wanted to share a few more photos taken at Manito Park.

I took this photo of Mirror Pond, facing east.  I took a walk in the park during a cold winter day.  The pond is on the NW side of the park.  I wondered if it is thick enough for people to ice skate there.

I took a photo of this pretty orchid in the Gaiser Conservatory.    The conservatory is located in the middle of the park.

I love these cedar trees.  There are lots of them around the park.  This was on a path from the Japanese garden heading toward the Rose garden.

Hope you enjoyed these photos. If you are in Spokane, come check it out.  It is lovely in the winter but must be amazing in spring, summer and fall. There is a cafe open in the summer and they have free summer concerts. 

Here is a link for more information about the park, including a list of summer concerts and a great interactive map:

Random Late Fall and Winter Photos!

My past photos often were of flowers, as during my time in San Diego, there was always something blooming.  I’m in Spokane, WA now and the blooms were gone when I got here.  I’ve had to take photography inspiration from trees, bushes new to me, and winter grasses.  Here are some random photos taken along my walks.  My walks are quite different now as before I was mostly in shorts and sandals.  Now, I’m bundled up with mittens, cap pulled down over my ears, a winter coat and winter boots, walking cautiously to avoid slipping on ice 🙂

I don’t know what kinds of trees/bushes these are, so if you know, please leave the info in the comment section.
